For Immediate Release
June 17th, 2020
Kingston Care Center of Fort Wayne's #1 priority is the safety and wellbeing of our staff and residents. We are grateful for the guidance we have received from the CDC and The Indiana State Department of Health to prevent Covid-19 from entering our building. Despite our unwavering vigilance, and our continued monitoring and testing of residents, we have recently experienced an outbreak of this invisible virus in our facility. Today, we have 65 active cases, and are sad to report we have experienced 4 deaths.
We have prepared for this possibility and continue to work closely with health officials who assure us that we are taking all appropriate steps to prevent further spread of Covid-19. The Indiana State Department of Health conducted a Covid-19 infection control survey at our building. During this survey the ISDH reviewed policies & procedures and observed infection control processes within the facility and we were found to be in complete compliance with all Covid-19 guidelines and infection control procedures.
